About EPI

The Educator Preparation Institute at IRSC provides a fast track to a teaching career for anyone who holds a Bachelor’s Degree in a field other than education. You can complete the program in less than a year with convenient day, evening, and online classes. And, you’ll be well-prepared to become a highly qualified teacher with professional state certification. Dozens of people from all walks of life have completed the program and have been hired by school districts.

Share your knowledge, give back to the community and positively impact the future as a teacher!

Indian River State College is actively involved with the recruitment and education of teachers for Treasure Coast classrooms, and the EPI was developed to combat the teacher shortage. EPI assists with certification in all subject disciplines with a special emphasis on attracting teachers in math, science and Exceptional Student Education (ESE).
